president. >> obama arrived in denver at 2:00 p.m. today. just a few hours before the debate started. romney did his debate prep in denver. when you go to 5,000 feet and you only have a few hours to adjust, i don't know. lou: basically is a rendering here. by the way, did you notice he has not lost that deep side that got him into some much trouble. did that make you relive the moment? >> the denver marathon. lou: one thing is for sure, the former vice president has not acclimated to wherever he is. >> it's not like he's at 13,000 feet. i don't think that was the problem. lou: you have to -- what was the problem? and i have to say, i think it is really summed up in two words. governor romney. romney came in and showed him what anyone who wishes to debate must possess, aggressiveness, clear, clear minded focus on the facts, command of them. excuse me. let me -- forgive me, but neither of you are really equipped to be an arbiter of truth here. okay. really. i'm being quite serious. i'm looking at you. said more than once that you are a political strategist when the truth is irrelevant.

. gerri: all spin going on today. al gore had this to stay "obama arrived in denver 2 p.m. before the debate started, and romney did the debate prep in denver. when you go to 5,000 feet with a few hours to adjust -- >> i'm prepared for al gore at altitude for the presidential debate in 1996, and the issue is not the altitude, but the preparation. the president wasn't prepared to deal with an assertive and aggressive mitt myth. that's for sure. gerri, in the white house, the president doesn't get confronted. we saw evidence of what you saw before, four years of acquiescence by a staff that arguably didn't challenge the president enough. gerri: following up on that, you didn't tell gore to charge george bush, did you? >> absolutely not. gerri: good to know. you said you prepped clinton, and he had a different way of going about this. >> my partner, mack penn and i, handled the messages, and bill clinton wanted to be challenged. he wanted people to take positions so he would stimulate and simulate what debates were like. i don't have a sense this president is necessarily operating in the

. from the wall street journal, borrowing from the obama campaign that mitt romney has an identical twin. whoever that guy representing the gop ticket was in denver has just given united states a real presidential election at last. that was the first line from a column this morning. dan joins us now. you stayed up all the way to the night. i know you did. you were not expecting that, were you? >> stuart, no one was expecting that. no one would have predicted that outcome. that was off the charts. now, i think, we have an election and a new baseline set for the new campaign. stuart: was it a pivotal point, not just in the polls, but the entire campaign? >> it is a turning point. romney, whatever happened to obama, romney did set down a new set of arguments. he talked especially well about economic growth in the relationship to growth and spending. he said you could do three things to growth. cut spending, raise taxes or you could get more employment in which people pay taxes to reduce the deficit. at least he is putting down a real argument. he did the same thing with healthcare and regul
